Sandhill Cranes at Whitewater Draw, Nancy Charak, photographer
The images of the aquatic birds and Sandhill Cranes at the Whitewater Draw that I have been posting in the last couple of days were taken with my point and shoot Canon PowerShot SD3500 IS. Getting this kind of an image was purely point and shoot without any pretense of focusing, but merely aiming in the general direction. The camera has a dismal shutter lag and takes its own sweet time to process the digital image so that as it cycles to ready one could miss an even sweeter image. However, I have learned that getting the picture is all about trust, trust that I can get the moment not merely because of the technology, but in spite of it.
